Episode 26: Hide and Go Seek

Monday, August 1, 1966

My name is Victoria Winters. I've come to Collinwood to unlock the echoes of my past, but the tensions of the present to obscure my search. Tensions that fill the dark corridors, and wait in musty corners, and murmur behind the doors of unused rooms.

Vicki catches David in the hallway with her letter, but it’s not the letter she cares about now. She shows him the valve she found in his room.
David says she’s lying.

Vicki asks him how he could do it. His father was almost killed. She says she’s going to show it to his aunt. She couldn't imagine a little boy could physically attack her. David tries to take the bleeder valve away from her, grabbing her arm, pulling and clawing at her. 

She tries to get into her room to lock herself in. David pushes past before she can get the door closed.

He continues to attack her, trying to get the valve out of her hand. He is truly scary.


She manages to lock the valve in her drawer, and then says she’ll give him the key. 

But he has to come with her first so she can show him where she found it. 

When they get to her door, she pulls it shut and locks him out.

 At the police station, Jonas tells Roger they don’t have a good enough case against Burke to arrest him at this point. Even though Roger is angry that Burke hasn't been arrested, he politely says, No, thank youto Jonass query of whether he would like lunch.

David waits outside Vicki’s door. She tells him his father will be coming home soon.

Roger tells Jonas he could be killed if Burke tries again. The constable eats his lunch, even though they put mustard on his ham sandwich. He’s never liked ham with mustard.
(Apparently, Jonas is the sheriff—not the constable, as previously. This is the sheriff’s office.)
Roger tries to pull his political clout. The election is coming up. Jonas isn't interested in Roger’s clout.
Roger thinks maybe the bleeder valve is in Burke’s hotel room. Jonas says only a fool or a psychotic would hang onto that valve, and he doesn't think Burke is either.

Liz catches David trying to run outside. He tells her Vicki tried to hurt him. She asks for a full explanation. He says Vicki grabbed at him and pulled him into her room. He “borrowed” her letter.
“Aunt Elizabeth, I'm scared. She hates me, and she’s going to make up all kinds of stories about me.” (Bad Seed II.) Why, she’ll even try to blame him for his father’s “accident.”

Vicki joins them and asks to speak to Liz alone. David says Liz won't believe her.

Jonas returns to the sheriff’s office with a search warrant, humoring Roger. (Maybe he does care about that clout a little bit, after all.) Roger wants to come along, but Jonas isn't having it. Roger leaves. Jonas makes another call to see if any progress has been made for finding out about Devlin in New York. He throws away his sandwich.

Vicki tells Liz how she went to David’s room searching for the letter, and that David attacked her. David hates his father.
Funny. David said Vicki would blame him for the accident.
They’re interrupted by a call from Roger. Liz tells him Jonas knows what he’s doing.
Vicki tells Liz she found the bleeder valve in David’s dresser drawer.
“Why, why would he have it?”
“Why did you think Burke Devlin had it?”
Vicki and Liz go up to see the bleeder valve. Vicki unlocks her drawer.
“It’s gone,” she says.
